I'm a strange mix of pragmatic and daydreamer. I've had the luxury of touring internationally with a band I started, and I also have a job that I love completely detached from the music industry. A professional musician by way of a bachelors in Political Science, though I have yet to write a song about John Stuart Mill. I am cursed with super-active empathy. I contribute to NPR. Sometimes I daydream about being a stand-up comedian.
I could probably eat pizza every day for the rest of my life and be content.
What I’m doing with my life

The six things I could never do without
The Scientific Method
Some sort of musical instrument
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether or not the universe is infinite, and the potential hilarious implications of such; what kind of cuisine will I tackle next; potential future lyrics; how I would survive a zombie apocalypse (hint: treadmills.)
On a typical Friday night I am
...not ashamed to admit I like to stay in and watch a movie. Or go out and play with friends. But oftentimes I cook something that takes 5-6 hours.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was in third grade, I was personally responsible for Ross Perot winning our elementary school mock election.
...and I know a thing or two about safe-words.
